    Default Prince Harry given delirious reception in US

    Prince Harry given delirious reception as US tour begins in Senate | UK news | guardian.co.uk

    When Prince Harry visited the Senate, people stood five deep in the corridors, and grabbed their jackets in excitement!!

    So, why are the American's so excited by the British Royal Family?

    Because America is a bit like Ireland. They still have a few West Brits not yet ran into Canada.

    Some sort of colonial nostalgia perhaps...

    It's not specific to Americans either.

    This fu*king thread was slipping away into the wilderness and then someone had to reply...,

    The queens speech the other day was insane. It was like a pantomime, she looked like a decrepit barbie doll. This parasitic, antediluvian, sectarian Monarchy should be abolished. However, the grovelling traitors in Ireland who worship Monarchy are to be found in other parts of the world as well. Any farcical royal folly reminds me of what James Connolly advocated to do when these cretins enter your country. You should protest them and stand up for yourself and your fellow countrymen and women:

    Fellow-workers, stand by the dignity of your class. All these parading royalties, all this insolent aristocracy, all these grovelling, dirt-eating capitalist traitors, all these are but signs of disease in any social state diseases which a royal visit brings to a head and spews in all its nastiness before our horrified eyes. But as the recognition of the disease is the first stage towards its cure, so that we may rid our social state of its political and social diseases, we must recognise the elements of corruption.

    I thought she looked lovely on her Irish visit.

    Wouldn't it be really lovely if Kate came over here - with the new little princess??

    I wonder what they will call her?
